You all know that Hersheypark really is my home theme park, if you follow me you know my family visits quite often. While The Boardwalk is fun in the summer, we LOVE to visit during fall and winter months for the special events.
Hersheypark In The Dark
There is no better place to celebrate Halloween than in Hershey with coasters and chocolate! Hersheypark In The Dark will open for three weekends beginning October 15 and running through October 31, 2021; Fridays from 5-9 pm and weekends 2-9 pm.
The 2021 seasonal event marks the 15th anniversary of Treatville trick-or-treat trail with candy stops inside Hersheypark for guests ages 12 and under. Coaster fans can enjoy the return of night rides on the Park’s coasters, with lights-out rides on five coasters including Candymonium hyper coaster in the new Hershey’s Chocolatetown region.
Other unique offerings include costumed Hershey Characters experiences, new fall foods throughout the Park, and Creatures Of The Night program at ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park, which is the only time of year the Zoo is open after dark.
You can buy tickets online now and save – one-day admission to Hersheypark In The Dark is $54.95 plus tax for ages 9 to 61. Children 2 and younger are free. Current Season Pass Holders can enjoy unlimited visits to Hersheypark In The Dark as part of their year-long perks.
Visitors can stay overnight at The Official Resorts of Hersheypark for the perfect fall getaway. All guests of The Hotel Hershey, Hershey Lodge and Hersheypark Camping Resort resort properties receive FREE Resort Benefits including FREE front gate shuttle service to the all-new exclusive resort drop-off location, resort activities, and more. I have stayed at all three and they are equally amazing and fun for families.

Hersheypark Christmas Candylane holiday attraction opens to the public on select dates from Nov. 12, 2021, through Jan. 2, 2021 with daily operations starting December 3 (closed Christmas Day); hours vary by day with event tickets available closer to the season.
